I traveled in and about Scottsdale and Phoenix this past summer and ate very nicely on numerous occasions. Unfortunately for me, I seem to have misplaced my extensive notes, all business cards, and every menu I collected along the way. Two standouts were BBQ joints and I'm hoping someone can put me onto their names.
One was along Indian School Road (I think) and the other was out in the burbs of Scottsdale along the main expressway that cut through the middle of town. (I apologize for being so very vague; I'm going through a parentitis flare-up and everything from that trip's merged together into shadows.)
If you happen to know of either BBQ (they were authentic Que), please blast their names. I'm hoping to recommend them to some associates on an upcoming trip.
